Hi Amir!

I just checked out aviation-photo engine in Airliners.net yesterday and I still noted some IL62's flying in Europe, just go there and check it out. Until 2 years ago we could see regulary ( twice a day..) IL62's flying to FAO, now they're all gonne!

Il-62s are banned from EU airspace, however there are still a few exceptions for summer charters. Maybe you could see several Il-62s in Geneva this winter season, as Switzerland hasn't banned the old noisy aircraft yet. There are always lots of ski charters from Russia from the end of December to the end of January.

From time to time there are charter flights into Switzerland. I have seen a Il62 from Eastline in BSL a few month ago.

Air Koryo operates also a few government flights.

Sorry, but no scheduled IL62 flights into Switzerland...

Just a small note: IL62 can be upgraded to meet new Chapter III noise requirements. However, it's quite expensive and it's simpler to use another a/c types, especially for european flights. Nevertheless, there are such upgraded planes. For example, it is the plane of the RAO EES (Russian electricity monopoly) chief.

Well, last time I checked, Moscow was in Europe, so ya, plenty of IL6 flights to Europe.

(Just kidding, I understand your question quite well, just a little fun)

I saw one landing at EKCH a month ago. It was very slow to vacate the rwy.

It's Scandinavian

Since the IL-62 was the long range plane of the Soviet Union and former European east block countries, then it was never a common plane in western European airports. We saw much more Tu-134s and Tu-154s.

The IL-62 was mainly used on longer routes further east or to America, not for short range European routes.

Anyway, in 1990 I was on an IL-62 from Copenhagen to Prague. What I remember best was that for this 50 minutes flight it took two hours after boarding the plane in Copehagen until a cart was found which could start engine #1. Sure it wasn't an everyday experience for CPH to turn around an IL-62!!!

With all engines dead there was no aircon available, and the 30 or so pax were just about fainting from oxygen starvation when #1 and the aircon finally came to life. After about one and a half hours the air was so bad that all crew members silently left the plane.

Back home was an eventless flight on a Tu-154.

From 1st April this year the IL-62 is in principle noise-banned in EU airports. There may be special charter exceptions. And Switzerland is not an EU country.

Always keep your number of landings equal to your number of take-offs
